Speaking from al-Hawl refugee camp in northern Syria , while her month-old son played at her feet, Muthana said she misunderstood her faith, and that friends she had at the time believed they were following Islamic tenets when they aligned themselves to Isis. Muthana is the only American among an estimated 1, foreign women and children inside the sprawling camp of 39, people, which is situated about two hours from where a final battle to oust extremists is days from being completed. Muthana fled her home and took a flight to Turkey in November after several months of planning, which she kept secret from her family. Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!

Join 30 Pregnant Teen Girls Fight Poverty in Ghana
Osanko Child Poverty Relief believes that teenage and adolescent girls in our rural communities who are already giving birth to fatherless children must be supported with practical skills that enable them to get their lives back. We provide these Marginalized Young Women with Life Skills training and opportunities for improved livelihoods so that they can fully participate in society and raise healthy children. We are addressing complex and interrelated challenges of the exploitation of the girl-child, especially the most vulnerable in marginalized rural communities where they inherit generational poverty, illiteracy, early pregnancies and death. We want to give them every chance to become financially independent and raise their consciousness so that they go on to make informed choices and decisions because they know better. Provide life skills,vocational training for teenage mothers in dressmaking and hairdressing.
By Chris Perez. Samra Kesinovic, 17, and friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, would love to press the undo button on the last six months, during which they traded their comfortable existence in Europe for a life of evil engineered by terrorists. We will serve Allah, and we will die for him. For weeks, social-media accounts believed to belong to the girls had been posting pictures and information that seemed to suggest the young duo enjoyed living a life of terror. The pictures showed the two girls smiling and wearing their new Muslim garb, sometimes while flanked by armed fighters.
